Anyone own one? Was thinking of picking one up cause ammo is cheap as hell.

Would like to know how they shoot.

Some of the Romanian Tok's recently had a safety recall because of the safety itself.

Cheap, reasonably accurate, noisy (loud), if you find you like them but the grips don't work for you, find a set of grips for the Tokagypt (FEG made 'em for Egypt) version, they're actually decent grips.

LOL funny you say FEG. I own one of their browning HP clones. Good gun and it was cheap.

So what is the bullet size? .311, .310?

If you can't find a TT-33 look for a CZ-52,,,it shoots the same cartridge as the TT-33 (7.62x25),,,most can be had for less than $200. also,,,,SEMPER FI

Hello, all.
The TT-33s are great guns. I have a Russian, a Pole and a Romanian. All of them are good shooting, accurate guns.

The CZ-52 shoots the same ammo and is also fun. It is quite different than the TT-33, and most other handguns as well.

As mentioned above, there is plenty of cheap, surplus ammo available. The Romanian ammo works best in my handguns, but keep in mind it is corrosive, so you need to clean and oil the gun soon after firing. Commercial ammo is out there as well, but I haven't tried any.

Good luck if you decide to pick one up!

7.62 x 25 in the CZ or TT either one will take the .308 Hornady 86 gr. RNSP or .309 Hornady 90 gr. XTP HP work fine Sierra also make a .308 85 gr. bullet. You can also cast your own lead bullets if your so inclined.

Not worried about corrosive ammo. I clean any gun I fire right after use. Even if it's in the range parking lot.

I looked at the TT-33 a while back. And found the gun to fit my hand well. Haven't fired one yet. It's really a toss up between a TT-33 or a nagant revolver. Sadly tho. Ammunition for the nagant revolver is pricy. So TT-33 looks like the better choice. Mostly because ammunition is cheap and everywhere.

Yes, the Nagant ammo is hard to come by. I've been reloading for mine for a while now and that really helps.

I don't think you'll go wrong with the TT-33, especially since you've found it a good fit.

I read on another site that some of the Romanian ones suck(which wouldnt surprise me because some of the Romanian AKs had problems too), but I've heard nothing bad about the Russian or Polish versions(Which again, wouldn't surprise me, because I've heard nothing bad about Russian and Polish AKs)

I can't say speak either way about the quality of more recent imports. I've had my Romanian for two years.

All three of mine, including the Romanian, were made in the 1950s and the quality is very good.

i read that on the PAFOA(Pennsylvania firearms owners association) website. More specifically, here. Like I said, that's what I've heard/read, and multiple people on there seemed to have similar experiences. I don't have any personal experience, but they all did so I figured it was credible enough. Of course, YMMV.

I have a Polish factory no.11 1952 arsenal rework with the import safety as brought in by Century. Good trigger, nice bore. Shoots to sights with PPU ammo. Lee dies work fine. Accurate 31-087B cast from COWW with 5.2 grains of Bullseye functions 100%. Pistol fits in pocket of Duluth Fire Hose work pants. Accurate enough, controllable, affordable. For carry ammo pull PPU ball and replace bullet with Hornady .309" XTP 90-grain JHP. What's not to like?

Yes! I POCKET CARRY A TT33 in Duluth Trading Co. firehose work pants! The muzzle fits into the watch/cell phone pocket sewn in the bottom of the right side hip pocket. Butt is below pocket opening and pistol is flat and doesn't print. Carry chamber loaded and hammer on halfcock, I don't plan to drop gun muzzle-down on the deck. Carry spare mag in leg tool pocket. Carry ammo is. 309" Hornady XTP swapped over PPU primed case and powder charge for first 3 rounds, rest of mag FMJ because after first burst everybody is behind cover.

Half cocked on a loaded hot caliber chamber... what could possibly go wrong?

Ever heard the phrase, "Going off half-cocked?" Where do you suppose that originated?

For the benefit of others who are reading about the TT33 for the first time; DO NOT CARRY THE TOK WITH A ROUND IN THE CHAMBER. THERE IS NO SAFE WAY TO DO IT. PERIOD.

BTW, I hope your carry skills are better than observation skills. This thread started in 2010, when the analysis of the value of a TT33 was far different (when they were $100 and ammo was about 5 cents/round).
